Short and Sweet

Three weeks into my cast on arm induced blogging, sewing and creative break . . . missing everyone! Since I am typing with one finger, I will keep this short . . . here is what I was able to finish with the help of my kids and a friend . . .
Tree skirt for the Savvy Seasons swap using the new Moda Bliss. It is a great line and a understated take on the holidays . . . my partner suggested she would love this for holiday decor and I think it will be right up her alley. I plan to use this fabric on some upcoming projects myself.
I had plans to make a bunch of little items and had an stitching project half done . . . so switching gears I decided to let the fabrics help me make a bold statement and I must say I love the outcome . . . I hope my partner will like it, with little kids in her life I think it will be great. My kids wanted to keep it and love all things holiday.
I even cut into my favorite Shinzi Katoh holiday prints . . .
I will have to write a much longer post about how much I have come to appreciate on-line friends both new and old. Two great swap packages came my way in the last couple weeks.
A mug rug and fun goodies from Sue -
How can someone read your blog and look at your flickr photos and just know what you will love. This is such a fun and perfect mug rug for me! The stitching is fab and the whole thing is so fun! Thanks again Sue!
Then I was lucky to matched with a online friend who has been so wonderful to get to know over the last year. She was partnered with me and was supposed to make a couple of potholders . . . well lets just say the potholders brought friends! LOOK at this package, I am still fondling everything and making sure no one spills on the potholder or coasters!
Thanks Linda, I am crazy for everything and just LOVE the farmdale prints!
Okay I want to try and add links to this, but I am off to take a pain killer . . . perhaps trying this wasn't such a great idea, just wanted to say thanks and I am still around and miss everyone!
Have a great rest of October! We are getting ready for a visit from some dear friends from the UK and then my college roomate and her son. It will be fun having guests the rest of the month, I love a full house!

Oh dear when it rains it pours - I had no idea you had an injury! I was actually wondering where you've been! I hope you take this time to just relax and take care of yourself, (easier said than done with a bunch of people to take care of!) and then you can attack crafting with a renewed energy. Heal Up soon!

OH I have been there. I had surgery on my right hand once, tendon surgery. When they were finished, I was shocked to see not only a cast on my right arm, up to my knuckles, but my thumb was cast into a permanent hitch-hiker position! For 6 weeks. I re-learned to type with finger tips only and no thumb. I'll never forget that, makes you appreciate small things, doesn't it?
